Imagine Dizzee Rascal's "I Luv U" being covered by Phil Elverum and you have Becoming Real's "Get Hype." It's not exactly dubstep nor is it creepy folk but it definitely is not neither of them either. Like Salem's crusted crunk simulacra, this music is a bad idea made good by someone both really smart and fortunately talented. And judging by our recent interview with the man behind the project, we should expect a lot more measured weirdness in the future. Get "Get Hype" on Becoming Real's new EP on Tough Love right now.
